Reepham Ladies 4, UEA 2
IN an entertaining Martin & Acock Norfolk Women's Hockey League Division One game Reepham were up against a lively UEA side who are a far better side than their league position suggests.
Reepham got off to a great start, they were moving the ball around well and their attacking moves were proving hard to deal with.
A goal was imminent but UEA's keeper was proving hard to beat, pulling off some fantastic saves.

Katie Lake found the breakthrough from a short corner strike. Reepham's second goal again came from a short corner when Lake again was first to react to a rebounded. Reepham's defence and midfield were in control and continuously pumping the ball through to their eager front line.
Captain Katie Lakes hat-trick goal came when Dawn Fisher hit in a low, fierce shot which itself deserved a goal, but Lake made sure with a clever flick-in on the near post.

UEA were by no means sitting back and made sure Reepham knew they were still in this game with a goal from Katie Forsyth.
Em Bush made UEA's presence felt when she scored an early second-half goal to pull her team right back into the game. Reepham continued to create chances against a keeper on top form.
A well-balanced, enjoyable game ensued before Jane Proctor broke through to score Reepham's fourth goal to effectively kill the game off.
